Three New Animated Comedy Shows Are Coming To Netflix

Netflix announced three new animated shows from creators around the world. From fantasy book adaptions, futuristic hijinks, and dogs flying through outer space, the streaming service is growing its library with animation.
‘A Tale of Dark and Grimm,’ ‘Dogs In Space,’ and ‘Super Giant Robot Brothers’ have been added to the slate of CGI cartoons. This continues Netflix’s continual expansion into the animated space. Most recently, they released the Sony Pictures Animated feature ‘Wish Dragon,’ which was produced by Jackie Chan.
“Comedy comes in many flavors and we are excited to add a few new ones to the menu at Netflix,” Director of Original Animation Megan Casey said. “From a character comedy about dogs on a very unusual space mission by first-time creator Jeremiah Cortez, to a dark comedic take on fairy tales based on the wildly popular book A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz, to a giant robot buddy comedy from Victor Maldonado and Alfredo Torres, we are thrilled to give kids and families all over the world more reasons to laugh.”
According to a press release, ‘A Tale Dark & Grimm’ is based “on the best-selling book series by Adam Gidwitz, the animated series follows Hansel and Gretel as they run away from home to find better parents…or at least ones who won’t chop off their heads! As Hansel and Gretel leave their own story and venture through other classic Grimm fairy tales, unexpected narrators’ guide us through their encounters with witches, warlocks, dragons and even the devil himself.”
They continue, “As the siblings roam a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind the famous tales, as well as how to take charge of their destinies and create their own happily ever after. Because once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome.”

‘Dogs In Space’ takes place in “the not-so-distant future, genetically enhanced dogs are sent across the universe in search of a new home for the human race. It’s a giant cosmic game of fetch, as the canines seek a planet that will save humanity and – more importantly – let them return to their beloved owners.”

‘Super Giant Robot Brothers’ is an “action-comedy animated series” that “follows two giant robots who discover they are brothers, as they help defend Earth from the forces of intergalactic evil.”
